Wow, what a word. It means confused, disconcerted, upset, frustrated. One of the local vicars used it in school assembly this morning – and one of the boys knew what it meant! (Which must surely mean that his parents have used it… I wonder why…)
It's a good word, though. It could describe my state of mind quite accurately.
I'm in danger of becoming discombobulated because…
…we won't be seeing some of our oldest and closest friends, after a four year gap, this summer.
….we can't decide on holiday plans.
…I have so much on my mind that I'm getting very little done.
At school I have to:
Organise our school delegation to the Primary Schools' Congress for the day after tomorrow. I and the School Council chairman need to decide which issues we will present, organise the most important points and brief the delegates. We have a twenty minute slot tomorrow to do all that.
Organise our next School Council meeting
Plan and organise the school garden – a huge bare area of soil at present
Run the cycling proficiency club well enough for the boys to pass their road tests
Rewrite the PSHE and Citizenship scheme of work
Review the PSHE and Citizenship policy
Make sure that Walk to School week – NEXT WEEK!!! – is promoted properly.
That's all without teaching, marking and preparation.
